TAI: I’m glad you’re here. There’s something I want to do and I’d like it if you were there with me. This is stupid junk that… reminded me of Elton that I thought I’d save forever. But now I want to burn it cause I am so over him. O.K. remember when we were at the Val party and the clog knocked me out and he got a towel of ice to cure me? Well, I didn’t tell you but I took the towel for a souvenir. Then once my pen ran out and I borrowed one from him. And remember the song playing when we danced? “Hip Hop Hurray”. I got the tape and listened to it every night. It’s like, once you know someone who is so much better than someone you think you liked then that someone starts seem like nuthin compared to the other one, ya know? Look, you’ve got to help me get Josh. You know what I mean… I tried to fight it but I just can’t. He’s the only guy I ever really cared about. I know it’s impossible, but you keep saying “Carpe Diem” and you’re so smart at this stuff. Anyway, I lost five pounds. I passed the driver’s test, I’ve been totally straight, I feel good about myself and like I deserve a guy I love. It’s all because of you. You’ve been such a good friend. College guys like less make up and he told me to read “Beyond Good And Evil” but it’s too confusing so I’ll get the Cliff’s notes.
